In the Centennial year for the International Labor Organization (founded 1919) and the 75th anniversary of the Declaration of Philadelphia (1944), this convening will consider critical current issues affecting labor. In particular, it will explore innovative policy, organizing, and legal strategies to ensure that the costs and benefits of gig jobs and new platform technologies are equitably shared by all, and it will bring together organizers, academics and policy leaders engaged in local and regional efforts from across the US and the globe. The convening’s panels and workshops will allow participants to learn about such efforts directly from those involved and provide ample time to explore lessons learned, and future directions and collaborations. We hope to arrange additional opportunities for invited guests to have conversations with workers, organizers and others outside of the panels and workshops themselves.
